A copper-based layered coordination polymer ([Cu(hmt)(tfbdc)(H2O)]; hmt = hexamethylenetetramine, tfbdc = 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoroterephthalate; Cu-LCP) has been synthesized, and it has been structurally and magnetically characterized. The Cu-LCP shows ferromagnetic interactions between the adjacent copper(II) ions. Density functional theory calculations on the(More)
The binuclear homoleptic rhodium carbonyls Rh2(CO)n (n = 8, 7, 6, 5) have been examined theoretically. Three energetically low-lying equilibrium structures of Rh2(CO)8 were found, i.e., one doubly bridged C2v singlet structure and two unbridged singlet structures with D(3d) and D(2d) symmetry. The doubly bridged structure is the global minimum predicted to(More)
Theoretical studies on the binuclear (cycloheptatrienyl)molybdenum carbonyl complexes [(C(7)H(7))(2)Mo(2)(CO)(n)] (n=6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0) indicate structures with fully bonded heptahapto eta(7)-C(7)H(7) rings and four or fewer carbonyl groups to be energetically competitive. This is in striking contrast to the corresponding chromium derivatives. The lowest(More)
The homoleptic mono- and multinuclear carbonyls for Mo, Tc, Ru, and Rh, namely, Mo(CO)6, Ru(CO)5, Tc2(CO)10, Ru3(CO)12, Rh4(CO)12, and Rh6(CO)16, are investigated theoretically by the Hartree-Fock method and three density functional theory (DFT) methods, i.e., BP86, B3LYP, and MPW1PW91, along with the SDD ECP basis sets. The results predicted by all the(More)
Reduction of TiCl(4) with 1 equiv of HSnBu(3) followed by addition of [PPh(4)]Cl and then PR(3) leads to two new dinuclear titanium(III) compounds, [PPh(4)][Ti(2)(&mgr;-Cl)(3)Cl(4)(PR(3))(2)] (R = Et and R(3) = Me(2)Ph), both of which contain an anion with the face-sharing bioctahedral type structure. Their crystal structures are reported.(More)
The binuclear molybdenum carbonyls Mo(2)(CO)(n) (n = 11, 10, 9, 8) have been studied by density functional theory using the BP86 and MPW1PW91 functionals. The lowest energy Mo(2)(CO)(11) structure is a singly bridged singlet structure with a Mo-Mo single bond. This structure is essentially thermoneutral toward dissociation into Mo(CO)(6) + Mo(CO)(5),(More)
Catenanes are playing an increasingly important role in supramolecular chemistry. In attempting to identify the minimum number of carbon atoms in a viable catenane, the B3LYP, BP86, M06-2X, MM3, and MM4 methods were applied to study representative [2]catenane models, which consist of two mechanically interlocked saturated n-cycloalkanes ([CnH2n]2). The(More)
Cathelicidin has been reported to be multifunctional. The current study aimed to investigate the influences of exogenous cathelicidin-related antimicrobial peptide (CRAMP) on inflammatory responses in different disease models. In OVA-induced allergic airway inflammation, CRAMP significantly enhanced the infiltration of inflammatory cells and accumulation of(More)
A new compound containing a Cu(I)-Cu(I) unit with a short internuclear distance, 2.453(1) Å, is reported. The question of whether such a short distance justifies the postulation of a metal-metal bond is addressed using density functional theory (DFT). The new compound is Cu(2)(hpp)(2), where hpp(-) (C(7)N(3)H(12)) is the anion derived from(More)
The properties of perfluoroanthracene (1-C(14)F(10)), perfluorophenanthrene (2-C(14)F(10)), perfluoropyrene (C(16)F(10)), perfluorotetracene (1-C(18)F(12)), perfluorochrysene (2-C(18)F(12)), and perfluorotriphenylene (3-C(18)F(12)) and their radical anions have been studied using density functional theory (DFT). Three measures of neutral-anion energy(More)
